Paul McCobb – 1956
The minimalist and clean style of award-winning American designer Paul McCobb, who led the scene between the 1950s and 1960s, is in vogue again. De Padova reissues his famous Wingback armchair characterised by slender extremities of the backrest and a sculptural form, resonating both Shaker and Scandinavian furniture, pivotal inspirations for the Milanese brand. A pouf from the same period accompanies the armchair.
Designed in 1956 by Paul McCobb, this classic armchair continues the De Padova’s tradition to reissue iconic pieces and to make them relevant and contemporary products.

“Contemporary American design, is not the Chinese influence, the Swedish or the Italian influence. It is an American influence that has an American look about it and has the feeling of belonging in our homes. Such design fits the size and shape of our rooms. It is a period of its own and should not be confused with any other periods.” – P. McCobb
